Benefit for Utah's caboose to be held this Saturday

Posted on June 15, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



MONKTON — In the early 1970s, singer Utah Phillips bought a caboose to live in while he was periodically recording at Philo Records in Monkton. At “The Barn,” Utah recorded three record albums: “Good Though,” El Capitan,” and “The Telling Takes Me Home.” Utah’s son, Duncan, is now trying to move the 1890’s wooden flanger car to the Black Butte Center for Railroad Culture to restore it into a museum for his father.

Editorial: Is merging ACSD sixth-graders into MUMS the right move, now?

Posted on June 15, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



Whether you think sixth grade students within the Addison Central School District (ACSD) should be merged into MUMS (Middlebury Union Middle School) or stay with their respective elementary schools within the seven towns, what’s important about the question is that it’s focused on academics and improving them for area students. It’s not a question about whether taxpayers can afford the budget, or teacher salaries and benefits, but rather how students can best be served.

That’s refreshing.

Letters to the Editor: Salisbury crash puts spotlight on road safety

Posted on June 15, 2017 |
By Ian Ross



The April car crash that killed a 40-year old man hits home and a nerve for me. While I did not personally know him, some friends of my family were close to him. More to the point, I am almost 36 and have three young daughters of my own. I usually strive to be a safe driver, even more so since my oldest child was born.
